Happily we now have some photos from our Rotary performance early last month. Many thanks to David for taking these.
And thanks again to the Rotary Club of Camberwell for inviting us to perform.
Congratulations to every Cloud9 member. Everyone agrees our Warm Up Your Winter concert on Saturday night was a wonderful success. We travelled around the world in song and I heard the words ‘magical’, ‘beautiful’, ‘stunning’ and many other compliments from the audience. Everyone agreed we were especially amazing when singing from memory. And we handled our Zulu, Greek, Serbian and Bulgarian beautifully. A number of people commented that ‘Let it Go’ and ‘The Irish Blessing’ sung in forest formation were tear-inducing.
Thanks to our announcers, Eileen, Christine, Desley and Jen. Thanks too to our soloist Cathie, and to our pop-up accompanist Marie.
Special thanks to Gail for her duo with Annabelle. And of course, to Jenny and Sue, and all their volunteers, and to all of you for making a memorable and exotic supper.
Thank you to Clare and Grant from My Little Tribe Photography for capturing our joy of singing in photos.
Thanks also to Bagryana Popov and Mary Riccioni for their cultural assistance at rehearsals, Max Fotheringham for recording the concert, Margaret and Kevin McGregor for supervising the door and Stuart Hair for assistance with sound.
Finally, our immense gratitude to Gloria for her determination to challenge us to produce this varied programme so successfully, and also to Annabelle who provides wonderful support always! It has been a wonderful semester.
Enjoy your two weeks off!

Cloud9’s concert Songs of Love and Longing was an outstanding success.
The audience were treated to a mix of modern and classical songs from around the world on love and longing.
From “Till there was you” to ‘The Wedding Song’ there was something in the program for everyone to enjoy.
The highlight for many was the presentation in ‘forest formation’ of ‘Let it Go’ and “The Irish Blessing” to end the concert.
Choir members were thrilled with the comments after the concert which included ‘the best concert so far from Cloud9’ and ‘the clarity and sound from the choir was excellent’.
We look forward to seeing you at our next concert on Saturday the 29th of November!
2014 sees Cloud9 Women’s Choir begin another exciting year of new experiences and learning under the continuing music direction of Gloria Gamboz. Choir rehearsals remain on Thursday evenings but have moved to a new home/venue at North Balwyn Uniting Church. This church is an ideal venue for performances and the choir is looking forward to an opportunity to perform there during 2014.
Particularly at the start of a new year we are keen to welcome new members of all voice types to the choir. Please look under the ‘How to Join’ tab for details. We would love you to join us at a rehearsal!
